Mozilla Firefox marks the ned of Firefox v1.5

Firefox is now rolled out and it is the last security update which will be made for Firefox 1.5.x. Linux distributions will probably update their packages with security patches, but there will be no more official 1.5.x releases. Mozilla Corporation attitude is update to 2.x or switch browser.

The updated Firefox can be downloaded from the Mozilla Corporation Firefox Product. It is interesting to note that users are "strongly encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2" on this page. This likely means that Mozilla Corporation really don't want you to use Firefox 1.5. However, some Linux distributions will still allow you to use 1.5 by supplying patches throught the distributions various package management systems.
